Update: pictures & video
Today, NEVS has at least opened a new chapter in the Saab saga. Two car transporters with new Saab 9-3 Aero model year 2014 have left the plant in southern Sweden.
The vehicles are on their way to 20 bases distributed throughout the country. Customers interested in a new Saab can now book a test drive with the current model at selected local dealers.
NEVS has so far kept it under lock and key in which Swedish cities and at which Saab dealers the new 9-3 will be stationed. The local newspaper from Trollhättan was on site with a film team at this event - so important is the symbolism of the moment for the city. NEVS CEO Mattias Bergman also took his time for the press because it is also an important day for him. A short film sequence from today, Saab TV from Sweden, is available online.
One thing is for sure: it's a great day for our favorite brand! The last models rolled off the production line a good 3 years ago. Now, after a lot of fear about the fate of Saab, the brand is starting its comeback in Sweden, and activities around the Saab plant have also increased noticeably. In a few days, the first order vehicles should also go to the Swedish customers.
The Saab Saga continues, that's for sure!
